Today, we're bringing you the ultimate chill-out session in a glass – our Elderberry Smoothie recipe. But hold onto your blenders because this isn't just any old smoothie; it's a flavor-packed, nutrient-rich concoction that's as good for your taste buds as it is for your body.

Why Elderberries?

Let's kick things off by talking about the star of the show – elderberries. These tiny, dark purple berries are like little powerhouses of goodness. They're packed with antioxidants that help fight off free radicals in your body, keeping your immune system strong and your cells happy. Plus, elderberries have been used for centuries in traditional medicine to treat everything from colds and flu to inflammation and even allergies. So yeah, they're kind of a big deal.

Getting the Good Stuff

Now that we've got our main player, let's talk about what else is going into this smoothie. We're throwing in some raspberries and blueberries because, well, why not? These berries are bursting with flavor and loaded with even more antioxidants to give your body that extra boost it craves. And let's not forget about the banana – not only does it add a creamy texture to the smoothie, but it's also a great source of potassium, which is essential for healthy muscles and nerves.

The Seattle Elderberry Syrup Twist

But wait, there's more! We're taking this smoothie to the next level with a splash of Seattle Elderberry syrup. This stuff is the real deal – made from locally sourced elderberries and sweetened with a touch of honey, it adds a rich, fruity flavor that perfectly complements the other ingredients. Plus, it's loaded with even more of those immune-boosting antioxidants we love so much. It's like adding a little taste of flavor goodness to your glass.

Holly pouring the smoothie


  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup milk of your choice (almond, coconut, dairy, you do you)
  • 1 tablespoon Seattle elderberry syrup
  • 1 cup ice cubes


  1. Get Your Ingredients Together: First, gather all your ingredients and give 'em a good wash.

  2. Toss 'Em in the Blender: Pop that ripe banana (peeled and sliced), raspberries, blueberries, and ice cubes into your blender.

  3. Time for the Good Stuff: Now, drizzle in that Seattle elderberry syrup – 2  tablespoons should do the trick.

  4. Pour in the Milk: Splash in your milk of choice. Wanna go creamy? Add more. Feelin' light? Keep it minimal!

  5. Blend 'til Smooth: Lid on! Blend everything together until it's nice and smooth. Give it a taste – add a little extra elderberry syrup if it needs more sweetness. Too thick? Pour in more milk.

  6. Serve and Chill: Pour that smooth blend into your favorite glass, maybe toss in a few extra berries if you're feelin' fancy, and sip away. Ahh, feels good, doesn't it?

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of elderberries in a smoothie?

Elderberries are rich in antioxidants and vitamins, particularly vitamin C, which can help support the immune system and protect the body from oxidative stress. Incorporating elderberries into a smoothie can provide an extra boost of nutrition and potentially aid in maintaining overall health.

Can I use frozen berries instead of fresh ones in the smoothie?

Absolutely! Frozen berries are a convenient option for smoothies and can help create a thicker, colder texture without extra ice. Just be sure to thaw them slightly before blending to ensure they blend smoothly. Plus, frozen berries are often more budget-friendly and available year-round, making them a great choice for smoothie lovers.

Can I make this smoothie ahead of time and store it in the fridge?

While it's best to enjoy the smoothie fresh for optimal taste and nutrition, you can prepare it ahead of time and store it in the fridge for a few hours. Just be sure to give it a good stir before serving, as it may separate slightly. Avoid storing it for too long, as the texture and flavor may change over time.
